The Sound of Music is returning to the Grand Rapids Civic Stage, November 15 – December 15.
Loved by millions, the show features music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II and book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse. The beloved Rodgers and Hammerstein Family Musical was based off the memoirs of Maria Augusta Trapp’s “The Trapp Family Singers”.
Rodgers and Hammerstein’s final collaboration has become cherished by family audiences around the world. The musical’s fame inspired the creation of the most popular movie musical of all time, making the show in high demand.”
The Sound of Music follows the story of Maria Rainer, a spirited young woman who was dispatched from a convent to serve as a governess for seven children of the widowed Captain von Trapp. Gradually, the relationship between the stern Captain and Maria grows into a marriage. The couple returns from their honeymoon to find Austria invaded by the Nazis, who call upon the Captain’s service. The story concludes as the family narrowly escapes to Switzerland on the eve of World War II, creating one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in theatre.
